A personal warning from me about Corsodyl (which contains chlorhexidine). My dentist recommended that I should use it after brushing my teeth to help against plaque. After a few months use I noticed that my teeth were turning black and I was horrified by this and asked the dentist about it. She said that after using Corsodyl it can leave the teeth a bit soft and both tea and coffee can cause excessive staining. She cleaned my teeth up and I stopped using Corsodyl completely.

Reading the label I found that Corsodyl is anti bacterial and makes no claims whatsoever about anti-viral properties. So, all in all, I would say that it won't have any effect on Covid-19.

Apparently there has been an update to the list of symptoms of COVID 19. This includes a loss of taste. Oh, dear! I must have COVID 19, as anybody who has met me knows I have no sense of taste whatsoever!

Terrible news for all those of us with bad taste.

May have to have an emergency session with Florence Lewellyn-Bowen.

Come to Ireland there's no restrictions on entry. You can give Bilbo as your name, Taj Mahal as your address and 666 as your telephone number.
Tren you can go to Aldi and some fcuktard will come up tight behind you. You will say politely can you move back please they will nod and smile and stay where they are. You then get the chance to say #### off away from me. This will cause offence but as you will now have c19 you won't care.

This latest lockdown will hardly affect me, except perhaps to give me a bit of extra opportunity to work on more time to work on Daffodil :D

I've 'bubbled' with Robyn so we can continue to meet up for our weekly walks and I can still visit my beloved Salcey Forest on a Saturday morning for my weekly half marathon run...

Fingers crossed this lockdown does achieve its aims and will help pave the way to some kind of normality in the near future [-o<
